Solar energy stats

As a journlaist, you don’t need to be a data guru to provide your audience with better visual insights into the story you are covering. I created this simple charts for Germany’s second largest news portal Focus Online when I was covering a story on the new record in solar energy consumption in Germany. To help readers better understand the context of the story, I created two simple charts, the first of them shown above – it shows the structure of renewable energy sources in Germany and was created in Excel.

I also showed the distribution of energy resources on a particular day. I created this chart with the help of Datawrapper.
